TIPS FOR SERVICE PROVIDERS

Your Service listing allows your clients to learn about your qualifications and experience, your fees, and to view any other relevant information that you wish to share with them. Having a good Service description is the most important factor in getting clients to contact you.

  • Choose the category and the subcategory that match the most your expertise.
  • Choose the language appropriately. Your listing will be displayed to your prospective clients according to the language of their choice. A user who is browsing ASKOOL's site in English will only see listings written in English. If you are fluent in many languages, you should create a listing for each of them (for now, ASKOOL is only providing an English and French version of its site, but other languages will come soon). Buying a subscription to list your service and place your ad on ASKOOL allows you to create a listing in each language available. Of course, if you select English for your listing, the information contained in that listing has to be in English, and you must be able to provide the service in English also.
  • Give an attractive title to the service you are offering.
  • Write a clear Service description. It will appear next to your name when clients are browsing through your category. Allow clients to identify your strengths rapidly, and tell them why they should contact you.
  • Be sure that all your Service information matches the category in which it appears. You can create a unique listing for each category where you provide a service.
  • Indicate keywords that are related to your Service. Members will be able to make a keyword search to find the Service they are looking for.
  • Add a picture to your Member profile! Listings with a picture attract more visitors. You can upload an image from your computer (follow the link "Add / Change picture" in the “Services Office” section of My ASKOOL). You can also link to images that are located on another server by pasting the URL of that image into the Product description field (if you are familiar with html coding).
  • Verify your phone number to allow prospective clients to reach you. To edit your listing/s, go to your Services Office.


Promote yourself with your ASKOOL listing!

  • Let your friends and colleagues know that you are now offering your professional services online, and encourage them to pass on the word.
  • Attach a link to your "ASKOOL listing" in all your emails and on your website. The link is available in the “Link for my site” section of your Services Office” in MY ASKOOL.
  • Answer questions on the Forum regularly. Build a reputation and a clientele.
